Taco Lovers!  It’s a beautiful day and looking even better for TACOPOCALYPSE TUESDAY at the CUMMING TAP.  It’s going to be a great big ball of awesome topped off with some good friends, cold drinks, and some of the best tacos in the…well, pretty much anywhere you go.  It’s the truth, no reason for us to be coy.

We have been working diligently on our new kitchen (Project Bullhorn) and have aquired some new equipment to make mass production of your favorite tacos much easier.  What does this mean for you, the taco lover?  It means no more running out of tacos early, it means no more “backup” tortillas (I will post a video of our new tortilla system, which I am very excited about), it means a more consistent experience for you.  I am really happy about this, you probably don’t know what it is like to literally lose sleep worrying about feeding people tacos.


Menu For 5/22

  • Braised Pork
  • Wasabi Brisket
  • Vegan Chorizo
  • Bacon Chorizo

There you have it, the selections are legit.  You will love. Tomorrow at the Cumming Tap from 3 pm to 10pm!

Tuesdaypocalypse Menupocalypse-alypse!

My Dearest Taco Lovers,

I am currently writing this from our new digs, which is quite enjoyable indeed.  I think you are going to really enjoy this new spot when we get it opened up to the taco loving public.  I am really excited to be able to offer you Tacopocalypse 7 days a week. BUT THAT IS AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT STORY, WE NEED TO CONCENTRATE ON THE MENU FOR THE CUMMING TAP TOMORROW.

Now you are probably saying to yourself, “self, something something something taco taco taco NEW PLACE taco taco something something burp?”  I understand what you are going through.  My thought pattern is similar, but different.  This new place (aka “Project Bullhorn) thing will be resolved and announced soon. Don’t worry, be happy.

(if you are wondering what is up with this video, the fish’s name is Taco.)

Menu Menu Menu Menu Menu

  • Braised Pork

  • Vegan Chorizo

  • Korean Chicken

  • THE RETURN OF THE FISH TACO. Grilled seasoned Tilapia topped with our Adobo Crema (not “Chipotle Mayo” BEN. grrr.) and Spicy Slaw.  It went over so well last week that we are doing it again. Maybe I will even get one this time.

  • There may be another flavor or two depending on how hard I feel like working. I will say that we have about 20 lbs of beef cheeks in house, and potato poblano is always a possibility.  We will see.

We will also have our customary fresh cilantro, onion, and jalapeno peppers.  We will also have our Red and our Green salsas. (We have been labeling then as “hot” and “Medium” at the Farmers Market, but people are still asking which one is hot. It’s funny.)

Tomorrow, 3-10, Cumming Tap, Cumming Iowa. Be there or (insert random threat).

Gettin Rad In Madrid!

Tonight we will be returning to Madrid after a short weather related hiatus.  It looks like the call for gloom and doom tonight may, once again, a figment of our weather guessers’ imaginations and that things should be all clear for a ride (or drive) up to the Flat Tire Lounge for some taco love and $7 pitchers of New Belgium Brewing Fat Tire.  Tonight we will have what has become the four staples: Braised Pork, Vegan Chorizo, Bacon Chorizo, and Korean Chicken (which has become wildly popular).  Tacos start at 3 and go to 10 (or if and when we run out, which shouldn’t be a problem).  Come get Rad with us tonight.

Tacopocalypse Tuesday! (and Thursday)

Yes, the realization that it is only Monday has already swept over the Tacopocalypse camp.  BUT WE ARE TRYING TO THINK AHEAD THIS WEEK AS (excuse the caps) WE HAVE SO MANY EVENTS FOR YOU, THE TACO LOVING PUBLIC, TO ENJOY.  It’s also prime cycling weather, so it is better to just get this out of the way right now so the weather can be properly enjoyed.

This is the spot to be on Tuesday!



First up is TOMORROW, and the someday-to-be-legendary Cumming Tap Tacopocalypse Tuesday.  We will be serving up tacos starting at 3 pm and the flavors will be….A SURPRISE!  But will include Korean Chicken and Braised pork of course.  And probably Vegan Chorizo.  So…one other flavor to be unveiled at 3 pm tomorrow.  Bob will be slinging the world’s greatest Moscow Mules, and waiting to hear your really exciting stories about your Fantasy Baseball Draft experiences this past weekend.  (go team)



Thursday Tacopocalypse in Madrid!

On Thursday Tacopocalypse will be in Madrid, Iowa at the Flat Tire Lounge located right on the High Trestle Trail serving tacos from 3-???.  It’s going to be great weather for a ride to the High Trestle Bridge, and a stop for some tacos and maybe a $7 pitcher or two of New Belgium Fat Tire on the FTL patio. I know that’s our plan!

Why not get out and enjoy riding your bike in this spring weather, have some tacos at two of the premier bike-friendly bars in the state, and get down with some of the best tacos you will ever have?  Right, didn’t think you could come up with an excuse.  See you this week!

Spring Time Taco Weather Tomorrow!

Taco Lovers, the chef has healed enough to produce your favorite tacos!  And just in time, as it is projected to be 62 F-ing degrees tomorrow!!!!  Glorious weather for a bike ride down to see me and Bob at the Cumming Tap.  We will be starting at 3 for any of you early birds whom want to get down with some late lunch after a good ride south.  We will be serving Vegan Chorizo, Braised Pork, Bacon Chorizo, and one other that has yet to be named.  Bob will be slinging $2.50 pints of Fat Tire (yum) and the best Moscow Mules this side of…um…Moscow!  Come down for some food, drinks, and fun…and to hear me repeat the story of how I messed up my ribs a thousand times (or you can just read it here). 

We will see you tomorrow, and look forward to a bright shiny awesome Tacopocalypse Tuesday!
